Abstract: The recent advent of RNA-guided effectors derived from clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-CRISPR-associated (Cas) systems have dramatically transformed our ability to engineer the genomes of diverse organisms. As unique factors capable of co-localizing RNA, DNA, and protein, tools and techniques based on these are paving the way for unprecedented control over cellular organization, regulation, and behavior. Here I will describe some of our ongoing efforts towards engineering this system for enabling therapeutic applications.
